The Solent Half took place on a very wet then windy morning. Flooding occurred at an important entry point that was overcome with the strategic positioning of a pallet.
Rich Waldron easily won the race with a buffer of over a minute at the denouement from Stuart Holloway (Salisbury) whilst Emma Jolley triumphed in the ladies race. Jon Ward and Scott Augur got excellent times given the conditions . Keith Hollis and Paul Harvey both run solid times. Southamptons ladies were absent again from the results unfortunately.
The Solent Half clashed with the relatively new Winchester Half Marathon. The latter had 1236 finishers but the bulk of the club runners supported the Road League event which is what we would have hoped for.
